As lifelong health and wellness enthusiast, I have over fifteen years of experience teaching group and private fitness classes. For the past six years I have been teaching various forms of mind body exercise, throughout the Boston area and have taught yoga internationally at Ashiyana Yoga Retreat Centre in Goa, India. My 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certified Training is attributed to Rolf Gates and, currently, I am studying towards my 500 hour E-RYT training at Prajna Yoga, with Tias and Surya Little. Additionally, I have a passion for cooking healthy, delicious food as a means to heal the body and a way to savor life, and have been pursuing classes at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Food & Health in New York City. Through the healing synthesis of breath and movement, provided by the flowing practice of Vinyasa, I have developed a study and teaching style which helps to innervate the spirit and nourish the soul. My classes may contain a hybrid of disciplines but are always rooted in mindful movement, set to the cadence of fluid breath and music of mixed variety. I encourage my students, new and old, to arrive at their mats with nothing more than a sense of compassion for themselves and an openness to their own potential. I believe that a well balanced body and mind come, not from asperity but, from acceptance and that strength is more oft found in stillness, than in activity. Whatever the reason that has generated your interest in yoga, I merely invite you to work with intention in order to reestablish the mind-body connection, to bring about a deeper awareness and thus a sense of great peace into your daily life.
